Student Field Trips Packages

Starting from


One and two day field trips to New York City are a great opportunity for younger student groups to discover the art of travel while having fun and discovering unique and new things during their trip to the Big Apple with their class. We have unique one and two day program suited to grades 4 through 8. If your school limits the time you can travel this is a perfect way for educators to complement in class teaching with a fun and safe trip to Manhattan. What places and people come to mind on mention of New York City? The Brooklyn Bridge, Times Square, Madison Square Garden, Wall Street, Central Park, The Federal Reserve, Grand Central Station, The Statue of Liberty….John D. Rockefeller, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Cornelius Vanderbilt, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Peter Stuyvesant, Martin Van Buren, Jackie Kennedy Onassis….Babe Ruth, Rocky Graziano, Frank Sinatra, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Rodney Dangerfield, Jerry Seinfeld, John Lennon, Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkle. But do you know how New York City became a magnet for such distinguished figures in business and entertainment? Mayor DeWitt Clinton in the early 1800s both arranged for construction of the Eerie Canal and turned New York City’s streets into neatly arranged X and Y coordinates, facilitating the transportation of trade, which gave the city a competitive edge over cities like Boston, which still has the same winding, confusing streets. Do you know that the second oldest house in New York City, the 1661 Bowne House of Queens, held Quaker meetings in violation of city law, and John Bowne was imprisoned by Mayor Peter Stuyvesant? His courageous stand later led to the Bill of Rights, one of his sons became mayor, and another son founded the oldest publisher still in existence in the US. Private tours are available because the Bowne House is the ancestral home of a member of GoTours, and the family still operates the house, which is now city property. New York City student tours offer a wide range of options educationally, whether it be learning about the US monetary system by touring the Federal Reserve, learning about art while visiting the Metropolitan Museum of Art and MOMA, or learning about the history of US immigration while visiting the Statue of Liberty and New York City’s many diverse ethnic enclaves, which may include lunch on Mulberry Street, on the way walking past the original site of John Gotti’s social club (now a shoe store), or walking about the vibrant colors and bustling activity of Chinatown which is cross-cut by Mulberry Street. A walk through Central Park offers the opportunity to learn how New Yorkers escape the confines of concrete, and how the park was designed with a Parisian influence. On the cusp of Central Park, gaze at the impressive architecture of the Dakota Building, home to John Lennon and Madonna, which was built in the 1800s as a country retreat for New Yorkers before the city spread its wings further uptown. See the vivid colors of Times Square, with perhaps a visit to the wax museum. The New York City tour can be crafted according to the desires of the tour group, and the variations are endless. 5 Go Educational Tours
